    The earlier Moche tradition, which developed in the same territory, had the greatest artistic influence on Chimú. Moche elements in Chimú pottery include small modeled figures (such as monkeys on the spouts of stirrup spout bottles) and marine elements (such as crabs and Spondylus shells. The interplay between the memories of Moche iconography and the fertility of the Chimú style was an immensely creative one. With the destruction of the Chimor kingdom at the hands of the Incas in A.D. 1470, the Chimú style declined.
